Comment: Re:A few embedded strings and timestamps? (Score 2) 129

Seems to me that the odds a hacker group would intentionally embed a codeword attributed to another hacker organization to cover his tracks are higher than the odds that the NSA accidentally embedded the same strings in multiple exploits. That's on a relative odds basis. On an absolute basis the odds for either seem rather low and thus IMO the evidence in the article is still very weak.

Comment: Sometimes it takes embarrasement to effect change (Score 4, Interesting) 356

The rapist's comments in the documentary are pretty shocking - he blames the victim for the rape, for being out at 9PM rather than at home doing house chores. I suspect this perspective isn't unique to this one man and thus the government considers it an embarrassing reflection on the nation as a whole. Maybe that's a good thing.

An optimist believes we live in the best world possible; a pessimist fears this is true.
